RB Leipzig put pressure on Bayern München at the top of the Bundesliga table with a 1-0 win over VfB Stuttgart at Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday.


VfB Stuttgart goalkeeper Gregor Kobel, who made a number of saves throughout the game, denied Emil Forsberg from the penalty spot after 22 minutes.

But he couldn't stop Dani Olmo from scoring the winning goal midway through the second half as the midfielder tapped the ball into the net at the back post after a lofted cross from Angelino.

With their win, RB Leipzig overtake the top spot from Bayern München and are one point clear of the Bavarians, who have a game in hand against Mainz on Sunday.
